Mock Boursin Cheese

I love Boursin cheese – on English muffins, on pumpernickel toast, in pasta sauces, basically on anything. I use Boursin a lot, but it is not cheap. Years ago, my stepmom gave me a recipe similar to this (it had twice as much butter!), and this is a really close match. Absolutely delicious, I love it so much.

The key ingredients of my totally copycat, Mock Boursin Cheese are thusly:

Key Ingredients for Homemade Boursin Cheese

  1. UNsalted butter. We want creamy dreamy sweet unsalted butter in this recipe.
  2. Cream cheese OR Neufchatel. I have used both, so if you want to save a few calories, you can get away with the lesser fat Neufchatel.
  3. Herbs! A bunch of them. But at least in this recipe, they are mostly dried pantry ingredients.

Easy! This dip recipe is super easy to make and ready likety split, BUT (sorry, but there is a “but”) it does need to spend a little time in the refrigerator to get to its truest, awesomest, Boursin-esque self. So, after we blend everything up, just give it a little time in the fridge (or make a day in advance), then you will have yourself a completely convincing, SO delicious herbed cheese to spread on all the things.
